She started the business with the purchase of a few coffee plants and planting a small plot. To date she has five years’ experience.

She decided to form a group and request a loan she’ll use to buy fertilizer for her coffee crop. In future, she’d like to have more land to be able to plant more coffee and earn higher income.

The other group members work growing coffee, corn and weaving traditional clothing.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
